Announces Growing Demand from Vehicle Black Box Manufacturers in Asia and Europe

Cambridge, UK – 11 January, 2012– Antenova Ltd., the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced their GPS RADIONOVA® RF Antenna Modules have been selected by leading Korean Vehicle Black Box manufactures iTronics, AMON and UB1 for the global markets.

“We have seen increasing interest in our GPS RADIONOVA RF Antenna modules from vehicle ‘black box’ and other vehicle tracking device manufactures,” stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova. “Many of the ‘black box’ drive recorder/tracker devices are manufactured in Korea for the Japanese and European markets.
